It seems we have to begin reporting these stories with a degree of caution so as to not get everyone’s hopes up when they can’t find an OTA update to be found. Thankfully, we’ve already received several reports from our readers (thanks, guys!) that the latest OTA update for the HTC Droid Eris has started rolling out in full force today.
Originally, Verizon held a soft launch for the OTA (as has become popular with the carrier) on July 16th to test the process and make sure everything goes according to plan. Now, it looks like Verizon feels it’s ready for mass consumption. The update is being called MR4 and should fix the “silent call” bug that’s been plaguing a number of Eris users for some time now.
Other improvements include improved audio clarity across the board, contact sync with Facebook, Backup Assistant, and Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Jabra bluetooth support, improved stability, and more. Let us know if you’ve been able to pull the file down for installation (if not, reader Eugene O’Rourke has you covered here with a manual download link and associated instructions to do it yourself).
